How to setup hotmail on iPhone 4?

Hi,

Also, when I get mail on the iPhone will it stay on the hotmail server ie. if I lose my iPhone will I have everything on the web hotmail?

Thanks

If you tap on add account and pit in your email addy and password it'll auto configure the pop settings. If you want to do it manually the correct settings are below.


POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 25) {Note: If port 25 has been blocked in your network or by your ISP, you can set SMTP port to 587 with TLS or SSL Encryption depending on the client in use}
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

And yes the messages stay on the server

Ok, I've found the solution. I was trying microsoft exchange which clearly didn't work so when I tried "other" it then worked fine.

Ok, thank you. I don't want to lose the server version as its way more convenient and accessible from anywhere

There is no time limit on the server version if I get the messages to iPhone, is there? Everything stays the same as before for the web server version, right?

Does anyone know how to set up a hotmail account where it will completely mirror the regular web-based hotmail. You know, if I check a message on my laptop, it will show up as already read on my iPhone account.

Here is how I have mine set up.
Toggle off "ask before deleting"
Also,
Settings-Mail-Account-Advanced-Delete from Server is set to "when removed from inbox"

Like the post above, you should set it up with ActiveSync instead.

I had mine setup with POP before and it didn't mirror the server.

The new EAS protocol that MS finally enabled for hotmail is amazing, plus you can sync your contacts and calendar from hotmail over the air too.

In settings > mail > fetch data. I've set it to push and for fetch I set it to manually. So should this alert me everytime I get an email asap?

Also will the above^ effect the battury life much?

Thanks
From self-experiment on my iphone 4 'firmware 4.3' ((not jailbreaked)) :-

1- Go to "settings"
2- Choose "mail,contacts,calenders" from the menu
3- Choose "Add account..."
3- Then choose "other"
4- Choose "add mail account"
5- write ur name, email,password and hit next button(be sure to be correct password otherwise the popup messege will come out and tell you "cannot get mail for pop3.live.com")
6-just wait for verifying you will see (incoming Mail server & outgoing mail server) is already filled and then click done.


if not, read step 7


7- For incoming Mail server :-
host name: pop3.live.com
username: "your email"
password: "your password"

-For outgoing mail server:-
hit (smtp: smtp.live.com)

primary server:
hit (smtp.live.com)

server : turn it on
username: "your email"
password: "your password"
use SSL :------------------------->on
Authentication: Choose password
server port: 587

hit Done button


other smtp servers---------------->off

and then go back

For outgoing mail server:-

choose advanced

Delete Messeges (an option)
mean delete your old emails from your iphone only,choose what you want.

In incoming settings:-
Use SSL: turn it on.
Authentication: Choose password.
Delete from server: mean to delete your old emails from hotmail it self, choose what you want.
server port : 995

then go back


And finally hit Done button

congratulations you have done



please comment........................

That's an iOS 4 solution, the other poster above me has the iOS 5 solution.

Sorry for strange question but is Hotmail outgoing server free for use? I remember that I couldn't send e-mails from Hotmail on iPhone some years ago and I red that I need paid service or something (Live Hotmail Plus ?)...maybe I'm wrong

Gmail only fetches from POP accounts once every 30-60 minutes.

If you need the Exchange capability for instant push notifications, definitely don't listen to falconeight.

Wrong. Gmail has the ability to work like Exchange and get instant push notifications. It's the way you set it up.

Read my post again, carefully. I was referring to Gmail fetching from POP accounts, not devices fetching/pushing from Gmail.

That's completely irrelevant to the gmail mail fetcher which is what you're using if you have gmail check Hotmail via POP. You can set up gmail as push but the link between Hotmail and gmail is still pull and you have no control over the mail fetcher's intervals. A client (gmail's mail fetcher in this case) cannot turn a non-push email account into push.

If the OP wants Hotmail to be push (and synced) then it should be set up via ActiveSync. I don't see them posted in this thread (could be the link in post 7 but it's blocked from here at work) but you can easily Google the settings.

You might want to elaborate on the pros and cons of doing so before just blindly making such a recommendation.

It's a matter of POP versus ActiveSync. Not iOS 4 versus 5. You can use POP and ActiveSync settings for any clients that support them, not just iOS.

I have my hotmail set up to forward all mail to my gmail account, then that's set up through exchange server.

The only thing to be aware of with this method is that you lose the Exchange capability of Hotmail this way. Gmail pulls in POP accounts every 30-60 minutes; you have no control over this.
